good morning. i'm nancy cordes. i'm anthony mason. here are a few of the stories we'll be looking at on "cbs this morning saturday." mitt romney said he owned but did not manage the firm bain capital. it's quickly becoming the bain of his existence. he's demanding an apology from president obama's campaign. billions of dollars gone. the head of a financial firm is arrested after trying to commit suicide. another is missing. where is the money? then open the roof, turn up the sound and head to the drive-in. the good old days at the movies again.
8:01 am
plus, right here in studio 57, the stars of "once" sing their beautiful ballad from broadway's hottest new musical. ♪ all that and so much more on "cbs this morning saturday." all that and so much more on "cbs this morning saturday." july 14, 2012. captioning funded by cbs good morning. welcome to the weekend. nice to see you. >> it's great to be with you. >> yeah. bright and early today. >> exactly. >> let's get right to the top story. we begin with a new controversy in the race for the white house. mitt romney is on the defensive and lashing out at president obama. yesterday romney was forced to explain why federal documents list him as the head of bain capital from 1999 to 2001. when the company he founded was sending jobs overseas. as chief white house correspondent norah o'donnell
8:02 am
reports, mitt romney is demanding an apologize but president obama's campaign is not backing counsel. >> campaigning in virginia, president obama said it's time for mitt romney to answer questions about his time as head of the private equity firm bain capital. >> as president of the united states, it's clear to me that i'm responsible for folks who are working in the federal government. and harry truman said the buck stops with you. >> at issue is romney's claim that he left bain capital in 1999 to run the salt lake city olympic. but in documents filed with the securities and exchange commission, romney is listed up until 2002 as sole stockholder, chairman and ceo. >> i think most americans figure if you're the chairman, ceo and president of a company, that you are responsible for what that company does. >> the battle over romney's business record escalated after obama's deputy campaign manager suggested that romney may be guilty of a felony for misrepresenting his role at
8:03 am
bain. do you think the president owes you an apology because his campaign has suggested you're a criminal or a liar? >> absolutely. my goodness. what kind of a president would have a campaign that says something like that about the nominee of another party? this is reckless and absurd on his part and it is something which is beneath his dignity. >> in an interview with cbs news' jan crawford tried to clarify his role. saying just because he was owner of bain, he wasn't responsible for any of the company's decisions. >> the documents show that there's a difference between ownership, which is that i own shares in bain, but i did not manage bain. i left as everyone knows to go out and run the olympics in february of 1999. i was full-time running the olympics. i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain after i went off to the olympics. >> but romney's past at bain is likely to continue to be an issue. >> mitt romney's companies were pioneers in outsourcing u.s.
8:04 am
jobs. >> the obama campaign has already spent nearly $100 million on television commercials, most attacking romney's business record and accusing him of shipping jobs overseas. for "cbs this morning saturday," norah o'donnell, the white house. >> cbs news political director, john dickerson, is with us now. good morning, john. >> truth is, john, it's not unusual for a ceo to take a leave of absence. but it doesn't look very good. how do you think romney is handling this? are people going to understand this tricky situation? >> no. you're right. it looks a little exotic. it looks a little different than people's common experience. what governor romney wanted is his experience at bain to basically have people think he's a business guy, he knows how to fix the economy. that's all you need to know about him. now he's having to explain complicated business arrangements. he's talking about things that just sound different from people's day-to-day experience. it changes that bain story for him. he'd rather get off this topic,
8:05 am
keep things focus odd n the and the status of the economy. the more he talks about bain, the worse it is for him. >> of course, the reason that these three years are so important, this is when bain embarked on this period of outsourcing jobs and investing overseas and the obama campaign is trying to make it that romney is an outsourcer. who is right? did he walk out the door in 1999 and never look back? >> yes, essentially. the question is was he in control of the day-to-day decisions? there's no evidence that that happened during this period. what the obama campaign is using is the name on the documents. this exotic arrangement as i've called it. they're saying no, no, your name is on the documents. which is the case. the question is the controlling question is was he the guy making the decisions to send pthere's no evidence that that occurred. >> is this a farrah association do you think? >> no. it's not. if you were to sit down and have a reasoned analysis of it. for the purpose of politics, a
8:06 am
reasoned analysis is not the case often. >> things are getting ugly. you've got people calling each other liars. romney's campaign said the obama campaign is out of control. is this really early for things to be getting this nasty? >> they haven't gotten -- once you get to liar, you get into personal characterizations. it does feel a little bit early. the romney people are saying, remember barack obama was going to change politics and not do this kind of thing. they talk about apologies and raise this question of obama's character. they're trying to get people to think, you know, he wasn't the guy who in 2008 was talking about a higher level of politics. tie that to people's disappointment about the economy. he wasn't the guy who was able to deliver. that's the counter move from the romney campaign. >> it seems like he's trying to take the outsourcing label and stick it on romney. in a race that's still very tight, that could -- you think that could work? >> sticking the outsourcing label on romney? for the obama campaign, it's a
8:07 am
series of shots at romney and tearing down this idea of bain being a great piece of experience. this is one shot in a whole array of them. >> so far both have showed there's a bit of an impact in swing states. john dickerson, thank you so much for joining us this morning. appreciate it. a programming note. tomorrow on c violence. our clarissa ward has the latest from southern turkey near the syrian border. >> reporter: they have been unable to enter the village to investigate exactly what happened there on thursday. on the day of the massacre, they were turned away by the syrian air force as they tried to enter
8:08 am
the village. but they did report that there was heavy fighting in the area and that government forces were using helicopter gunships and also artillery. we still don't have a precise number for how many people were killed on thursday. estimations range anywhere from 70 to well over 100. u.n. special envoy kofi annan denounced the government's use of heavy weaponry. but really mr. annan and his peace plan lost all credibility with the opposition at this stage. many you-tube videos posted by activists on friday show protesters across the country saying remove annan, he's a servant of assad. he will travel to russia and meet with president putin and they will continue to try to find a way to bring about an end to this conflict. for "cbs this morning" st., i'm clarissa ward in turkey. secretary of state hillary clinton is in egypt today.
8:09 am
its the next to last stop on her marathon trip around the world. margaret brennan is traveling with secretary clinton. >> nine countries in 13 days. america's chief diplomat is the most traveled secretary of state in u.s. history. she's visited 102 countries since taking office. president obama has visited 32. hillary clinton has only seven month left in office. she's not slowing down. in the first 48 hours, the secretary flew from the u.s. to paris to kabul to tokyo toggling time zones and topics. in kabul, she made an unannounced visit to the u.s. embassy and hamid karzai's presidential palace. the longest portion of this trip was spent in asia, boosting u.s. businesses. part of what secretary clinton calls economic state craft. a prime piece of her foreign policy strategy. from the platform of a woman's forum in mongolia, she pinched neighboring china. 24 hours later, secretary
8:10 am
clinton had breakfast in vietnam, luncheon in loo owes and dinner in cambodia. she addressed the painful memories of the vietnam war. during the visit, the secretary toured a center that provides prosthetics to victims of u.s. cluster bombs. she's the first secretary of state in 57 years to visit the southeast asian nation. 24 hours later, it's wheels up to the middle east. secretary clinton will be the highest ranking u.s. official to meet with newly elected egyptian president mohamed morsi. on monday, she'll head to israel before returning to the u.s. for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm margaret brennan, cbs news. it's exhausting watching that story. she leaves her post in january and there's lots of speculation about what she's going to do next. >> joining us from washington is the former spokesperson and traveling press secretary for clinton during her 2008
8:11 am
presidential campaign. so he's a man who knows a lot about how she travels. good morning, mo. >> good morning. >> so she's so far been to 100 countries. i think she's the most traveled secretary of state of all-time by comparison. the president has only traveled to 32 countries since he's been in office. why the punishing schedule? is she just someone who needs to be on the go? >> well, she doesn't do anything halfway. hillary clinton is a person who when she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work, she goes full throttle. i think she's proving that as secretary of state with, you're right, it is a grueling schedule. when she took office, a big reason she took the job was because she wanted to help repair america's standing abroad. there's no better way to do that than to get hillary clinton out there as the face of u.s. diplomacy. >> do you think she's tired? >> i can't imagine that anyone in that role would not be tired
8:12 am
at this point, especially, i get tired flying up to new york from d.c. so that schedule has got to be exhausting. that's who she is. she works hard and she does a good job at what she does. >> she's been the secretary of state. she has been a senator, she has been the first lady. what's next? >> well, look, i don't know what's next. i don't think anyone really knows what's next. i do know that she would be great at whatever it is she does do next. there's a lot of people out there who think she may, after she leaves public life, head into some sort of international foundation work, maybe working with her husband at the clinton foundation or setting up her own thing. she's been obviously for many, many years out front on the issue of international women's rights. she's, as you talked about in the piece, focusing on economic
8:13 am
state craft -- she could do nonprofit work in either of those areas and keep doing what she's doing now. she says she's done with politics. i got to believe her when she says that. if she were to get back in, i think she would be a formidable candidate. maybe she's earned the right to kick back on the beach and read a book. if she does do that, that will probably be one book before she dives back into the fray. >> you can't not ask the presidency question. if she gets back into politics, it might be the one job she wants. she says she doesn't want it. but there are friend of hers encouraging her. do you think no really means no? >> again, i mean, i got to believe her when she says she's not interested. she's earned the right to do something else with her life now. if she were to do it, i think she would be a very, very tough and strong candidate. you know, she is one of the most popular public figures in america at this point. i think she would be a strong
8:14 am
candidate. i think there are going to be a lot of people who try to encourage her. but she said she's not interested. she wants to do something else. i think she'll still have a major contribution if she doesn't run. >> all right. politicians have said that before. mo a lathe in washington. thank you for your insights this morningment. >> thank you. the penn state boort of trustees responded to that scathing report on the jerry sandusky child abuse case from former fbi director louis freeh. the trustees said they accept responsibility for freeh's accusation that they showed a "callous disregard for the sexually abused children." >> judge freeh's report offers a roadmap to help penn state continue to move forward. in the weeks ahead, we will certainly need to be carefully consider and review each of the report's recommendations. >> the board also said it will put together a team to begin making changes recommended in freeh's report. joining us now is the author of game over, jerry sandusky, penn
8:15 am
state and the cultural silence. good morning. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> how do you think the university is handling this? >> it started off they handled it deplorable fashion for many, many years. and now that mr. -- judge freeh has put the report out, he issued over a hundred things that they should do. most of them are basic common sense that the insular closed society of penn state never adopted. it's going to take -- they can put all these plans in place, but it's going to take a long time to live through what they've done to themselves. >> bill, who comes out looking the worst in this report? the president? >> what happened was there's a huge contradiction between what a bunch of folks said in the grand jury and what is in the freeh report. now, there's ongoing statewide grand jury going right now, and i think they're taking a good look at the former president, graham spanier, i think there are some other folks that are
8:16 am
exposed, at least from the point of view that their words are different in a grand jury under oath than they were in the freeh report. >> does that mean they face perjury charges? >> they could face, at the very least, failure to report child endangerment and there's a wide assortment of other things that they could be looking at. but the fact of the matter is, people were not honest and forthright all the way from graham spanier down to joe paterno. >> bill, "the new york times" is reporting this morning that as this was unfolding and developing and building that penn state was looking at giving joe paterno a lucrative retirement deal of $3 million, access to the plane, boxes at the stadium, all this kind of stuff. do you think the culture there can really change? >> no. i think that my experiences in interviewing over a hundred people with my partner, bob da
8:17 am
voracek. chef a closed society attitude that won't change quickly. it's got to change but it won't quickly. >> do you think the culture there is that different from any other school with a big powerful sports program like this? >> i think what game over is a cautionary tale to everybody. if it could happen at penn state, a place that has never been under an ncaa investigation, it could happen anywhere. >> what about joe paterno's reputation? >> joe paterno, inside the confines of happy valley, state college pa, joe paterno is a god. that will never change. but judge freeh's report this week put joe paterno in a conspirator's role dating back to 1988, meaning that 14 years went by, a bunch of kids were abused and joe's legacy, while it is great and he did a great job for many, many years, joe's legacy will always include that. >> nobody came out looking great in that report. bill mushi, thank you so much for joining us this morning.

8:22 am
job to refloat the vast ship. >> she's not designed to be on her side. we have to stabilize her as soon as possible. >> the costa concordia has been remarkably stable so far. you can still see the jumble of deck chairs piled by the long empty swimming pools. but it's only resting at the front and the back on rocky outcrops on the sea floor. the salvage team is going to have to build a platform to support the whole thing, then use cranes to ease her upright and finally, pump air into massive steel containers welded to either side. if the engineers' models are right, the wreck will refloat. then investigators can get inside and start gathering evidence. with the solemn anniversary ceremony over, the lawsuits are about to begin. for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm elizabeth palmer in giglio. coming up, he freed the slaves and won the civil war. why does a best selling author

♪ welcome back to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm nancy cordes. >> i'm anthony mason. we've got a lot to get to this morning. let's get to the top story. >> the top story this half hour. the mystery of what happened to congressman jesse jackson jr. his mother spoke out for the first time yesterday saying her son has dealt with enormous disappointment and needs time to heal. jackson's office said earlier this week, the chicago democrat has been an medical leave for a mood disorder. jay levine of wbbm tv in chicago has more. >> for congressman jesse jackson, the future was bright. he had considered running for mayor in chicago. then president-elect barack obama's senate seat. before allegations surfaced that
8:31 am
one of his fundraisers tried to buy it for him. >> i never sent a message or an emissary to the governor to make an offer, to plead my case or to propose a deal about a u.s. senate seat, period. >> jackson was never charged in the case, which brought down illinois governor rod blagojevich. but it did trigger a continuing house ethics investigation. a statement on june 25th announced jackson was taking a leave of absence for exhaustion. on july 5th, his office said his condition was more serious than we thought. woe receive extended inpatient treatment. less than a week later, they announced he was being treated for an unspecified mood disorder at an unidentified location. >> the idea of not having him here in the middle of the speculation is a good thing. >> many people here believe jackson himself should say something, be more specific about his medical condition. but sources close to the congressman tell me he may not be well enough to work until
8:32 am
after labor day. for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm jay levine in chicago. >> joining us now from chicago is lynn sweet, washington bureau chief of the chicago sun-times and here in our studio, director of the mood and anxiety disorders program at the mount sinai school of medicine. good morning to both of you. lynn, let me start with you. my sense on capitol hill was that as soon as congressman jackson's office put out the statement saying that he had a mood disorder, that people kind of backed off and said, okay, let's give him the time to recover. that explanation is good enough for us for now. is that the sense that you get from his constituents and democrats in chicago? >> well, there's a sense, that people do have a charitable impulse. certainly when anyone is ill, people want to give people some space and time. the issue right now is that there has been space and there has been time and the people who hired him who are his constituents need some more
8:33 am
details, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but probably pretty soon. just about what the nature of this mood disorder is even if they can't give a prognosis, perhaps there's a diagnosis that could be a little more forthcoming than what they've done right now. >> especially since he's up for reelection in four months. can you give us a sense of the power and the reputation of the jackson family in chicago and why this has created so much interest. >> i'll take the second part first. the jackson family is in chicago, a political dynasty at this point. certainly everyone in the nation knows reverend jesse jackson. he ran for president twice. the founder of operation push. rainbow push coalition. many people don't know that congressman jackson's wife is an alderman in the seventh ward. this is a power couple in the city. and that the congressman has
8:34 am
created a pretty efficient south side political operation where he systematically has been able to defeat rivals through the years. now, his reelection in november, even with this question mark hanging over him, i would say it would be a very rough time for a republican to win. the district is overwhelmingly democratic and the republican who is running is barely known. this is a county, i want to remind people around the country, that re-elected a cook county board president, or nominated him when he had been ill for months and was never even seen before his death. but nonetheless, severely ill. he was renominated. people might be a little fed up with this because of that situation. >> lynn makes the point, doctor, that mood disorder is a pretty broad diagnosis. what exactly is it? >> indeed, it is. it's a group of disorders characterized by depression and
8:35 am
other mood symptoms. major depression and bipolar disorder would be the most significant diagnoses here. what's important to understand is how prevalent, how frequent this is. basically, if you look at a group of individuals the size of the u.s. congress, you would expect about 45 to 50 them to have suffered with depression lifetime and about 20 to 25 to have suffered in a 435 group of people, 20 to 25 in the past six months. >> that's a big group of people. is this something brought on by stress? >> well, it's biological predisposition, genetic and otherwise. and then a history of traumatic life events makes a big difference and then in an individual that is so predisposed, having very intense stress would make it more likely that you have an episode.
8:36 am
>> doctor, here in new york, thank you so much, lynn sweet in chicago. appreciate your insights this morning. now here's lonnie with another check of the weather. >> guys, thanks very much. good morning everybody. let's get to the big picture. the satellite, radar image. satellite imagery will show you where the clouds are. the radar image those you the wet weather. as you look at this, you can see two areas of disturbed weather. one stretching from the tennessee valley into the ohio valley right up over into portions of the northeast. the second area is around the spine of the rocky mountains. we will be calling for scattered showers for both of those areas. in between, look at this, talk about sweet sunshine out there. but that's going to be the hotspot of the country. we're talking literally the center channel of the country. nothing like the heat you felt last week. sioux falls, wichita, 100. a lot of you last time this week 109. everybody bumps up a degree or two for sunday. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.

make it a great saturday everybody. anthony over to you. >> thanks, lonnie. up next, what if lincoln wasn't assassinated and instead was impeached? we'll talk to best selling author and law professor steven carter, whose new novel imagination just that. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." last season was the gulf's best tourism season in years. in florida we had more suntans... in alabama we had more beautiful blooms... in mississippi we had more good times... in louisiana we had more fun on the water. last season we broke all kinds of records on the gulf.

8:40 am
it's a provocative reimagining of history. what if abraham lincoln had survived being shot and faced the wrath of a divided and angry congress? that's the premise of a new book
8:41 am
by law professor stephen carter. it's called the impeachment of abraham lincoln and professor carter is here in studio 57. good morning, professor. >> good morning. >> thanks for being with us this is an interesting premise. you get to something that a lot of people, given lincoln's myth i can status don't realize, there were a lot of people in his own party who didn't like him. >> it's true. history does rub away the sharp edges sometimes of what really happened. i should say, i am a lincoln fan. i'm not -- didn't write this book to say that lincoln should have been impeached but the premise is interesting to me. some say if lincoln survived, is it possible to have an impeachment trial, what would it have looked like? that's why it's fiction. >> what did people in his own party not like about him? >> we tend to forget that lincoln, to a lot of the abolitionists was seen as a westerner, no college, no formal education, had a funny accent, he had a high voice. they looked down on him through his presidency anyway.
8:42 am
they thought he wasn't sufficiently absolutist in his purr suft of the abolitionist mission and so on. the idea is that members of his own party once the war is safely won along with members of the opposition, take up some of the things he did in the war, the closing of opposition newspapers, the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, defying court orders. things lincoln said were necessary for winning the war. those are the charges against him. >> you're a lincoln fan yourself. >> yes. >> growing up as a kid, your father had a lot of books about lincoln, you've read a lot about him. was it hard turning him into a character of fiction? >> it was very difficult but also a lot of fun. i do a lot of research for my novels. but i did more research for this than any of the others. while at first it was difficult taking someone i sew admire and making them a fictional character. after a while, i got into the enjoyment of fitting him into what's basically a courtroom thriller when you unpack the
8:43 am
other aspects of it with lincoln as the defendant in the trial. >> one of the other interesting aspects of the book, your heroin is a 21-year-old defense lawyer for lincoln who is from the black middle class in civil war america. i think a lot of people probably wouldn't realize that existed. >> i think that's right. that may be one of the reasons i chose her. he's 21 years old. she wants to be a lawyer. and this is at a time where there are no female haurs in the united states and probably six or eight black lawyers, we don't know the exact number, she's young, ambitious, barriers holding her back of race and sex and class and other things. i hit on her as the one who is basically telling the story. most of it is told from her point of view. i want an outsider's, not insider's view of lincoln. >> how successful was the black middle class at that point? >> it wasn't what it is today. a lot of times when we look back at the 19th century and especially the era around the end of slavery, we tend to think
8:44 am

9:02 am
for office, everyone said his greatest strength was his communication. yet, he says it was his weakness. >> it tells you what happens when you become president. you become absorbed in policy making. a lot of people would agree with that. he failed to sell what he was doing. and he paid a price for it at a certain point. >> republicans say that wasn't his biggest problem. you can see charlie's entire interview tomorrow on cbs sunday morning. both president obama and his republican opponent mitt romney offered their condolences to the family of a member of mr. obamas reelection staff who died suddenly. 29-year-old alex collapsed at obama campaign headquarters in chicago on friday. he died later at a hospital. the cause not yet determined. he had been on mr. obama's political team for eight years. in egypt, a kidnapper is holding two american tourists captive demanding that police release his uncle. the unidentified american said to be a couple from boston were abducted along with their guide

9:05 am
this weather segment sponsored by macy's. >> nancy, over to you. >> thanks, lon. it looks like bernie madoff may have been the tip of the iceberg when it comes to stockbrokers from investors. the ceo of a brokerage company was arrested yesterday just five days after he tried to commit suicide. federal investigators say russell -- he embezzled more than $200 million. was en dore of's company, peregrine financial, collapsed this week after regulators found that an account that was supposed to have $225 million worth of customer funds actually held just $5 million. the ceo was found unconscious in his car after attempting suicide. late last night, a georgia banker disappeared. after confessing in a suicide

note that he had embezzled $17 million worth of investors' money. he was last seen in key west, florida. joining us now with more on these financial scandals and advice on how to protect your money is jack otter. he's executive editor of cbs "moneywatch".com and the author of worth it, not worth it. jack, why are we seeing a lot of these cases? >> when you have a financial boom like we've had, you have a lot of money circulating and it's easier to get away with this stuff. then you start to get to the peak. there's more and more pressure to keep the results that you've been having. you get more bad guys trying to do stuff. everyone -- >> the tide is out. what's particularly disturbing about this case is that he admitted in his own suicide note that he had been doing this for 20 years. >> yeah. as you guys were talking about earlier, first of all, regul regulators were asleep at the
9:07 am
switch. he was a decent fraudster. people don't expect the faxes that come in and the information to o have been put together by photoshop. clearly, regulators are outmatched, aren't enough of them. they are vastly underpaid to the people they're supposed to be regulating. >> weren't there a few whistle blowers who said hey, you should check this guy's books? >> that's what scary. customers were complaining. he had an auditor, one guy in illinois. it was a big firm. earns and young should have been auditing. mott this other guy. there were plenty of tips that somebody should have picked up on. >> you're looking at a simple scheme relatively. he was using photoshop and taking bank statements and adjusting them. he set up a fake post box to intercept mail to make sure nobody else got it. it seems like a small time scheme in a way but it was quite a big company. >> it was a huge company. so people now i think are thinking oh, my gosh could this
9:08 am
be happening to me. i have my money in a company i thought was safe. people need to take a lot of steps. there are things you can do to prevent this from happening. >> so $200 million is gone. will the investors ever get their money back and what kinds of investors are these? >> these investors may not. a small distungs. but this was a futures firm. it was not protected by the security investors protector corporation. most people's broke erjs, merrill, schwab, those are protected by sip i can. up to have a million dollars is protected. not from making a lousy investment. but if the assets disappear, if it's bankrupt or whatever, the government will step in or thiso, i should say. as an investor make sure you're sipic protected. i would recommend a third party custodian. if you have an adviser, you want a separate entity holding your money. the adviser might tell the
9:09 am
vanguard, the fidelity what to do with the money. you get your statements directly from vanguard or whoever. you know the money is still there. he can't run with it. make sure your adviser is a fiduciary. they have to act in your best interest like a doctor or a lawyer. not a stockbroker. because they actually are only required to sell you a product that's suitable. you want somebody who can only buy the best product for you. >> as you say, you need to get past the appearances of this. this is a man highly respected in the community, hanging out with senators and it turns out he was committing fraud for 20 years. >> i find it scary. we cover this stuff, you and i. you never know where the next scandal is going to turn up. i want to caution people against thinking, because they see scary headlines like this, i have to stuff my money under the mattress. that is a guaranteed way to lose purchasing power. you need simple, basic, low cost mutual funds and of course, never ever, ever accept a

9:15 am
irresistible. i can't live without it myself. it's always been my home in show business, even during the years in which i slummed in other mediums. you should excuse the express n expression. anybody who starts in the theater never gives up loving it most, i think. >> why are you so partial to the classics? >> well, i'm partial to the classics because i love them. but i'm doing the classics now in new york. mostly because i think the rest of the theater is so well-represented in america. i do think the classics are a little bit neglected of recent years. in the old days in the mercury we did a lot of classic plays. >> there was another classic that you did, that invasion from mars. i'm sure everyone asks you about that. >> yes. well, that was -- i don't know if it's a classic or not. but it was an event of some sort.

9:18 am
realize how important and how dangerously important it is and how wonderfully important. i think it's too much a medium of casual entertainment and not one of serious exchange. i don't mean it should be solemn and boring and all of that. i do think that there are new forms that haven't even been attempted in tv that ought to be. it's solidifying and crystalizing too quickly. >> do you feel it maybe getting muscle bound in infancy? >> yes. middle aged when it's still young. >> what does that make us now? >> i know. makes you wonder what he would think of television today. >> right. i know. first of all, you never get tired of hearing that man's voice. the thing i remember about orson welles. my father told me about that radio broadcast, war of the worlds in which the radio -- he put together a show that was basically a pretend newscast about an invasion from mars. and my father remembered it from when he was young and said he actually believed it.

how much of our reality do we actually perceive? how much faith can we have in our memories? how does secrecy affect our health and relationships? these are questions that relate to magic and our daily lives. >> when you talk about the importance of psychology in magic, what do you mean? >> magic is about toying with the limits of perception. good magicians know how to manipulate what we see, how to use our own expectations against us, even instill false memories. p>> give us an example if you would. >> this is a simple example. let's say i took a coin and put it in my hand and made it vanish. so the trick -- >> i could do that all the time. >> the trick is i'm only pretending to put the coin in the hand while pulling it out. what really sells it and makes it work is that it takes a while for your brain to catch up. the brain cells are still firing. so you actually see the coin in your hand for a second. for a split second after the
